I have to translate the following sentence into English: Familia nostra amicītiam servōrum nostrōrum cūrā et grātiā semper augēbit et servābit.

So far, this is what I've got: Our family will always increase and save the friendship of our slaves with care and gratitude.

I know bits and pieces of it are DEFINITELY correct, other parts I'm just not so sure of... can someone please make sure that this is correct? I'm pretty certain about it, I just want to make sure.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Latin is not my forté but some words I do know:

familia = family or household

nostra = our

nostrorum = our

et = and

gratia = in order to, for the sake of, to; on account of; gratitudwe, favor

semper = always, ever

cura = management, administration, care, concern

Hopefully we will find someone here who knows Latin!
